Hi folks. I don’t live in San Francisco anymore, which renders anachronistic the name and mission of this blog. Instead of leaving it behind, however, I want to mediate it. My cinephilia was born in San Francisco and there it shall remain, even if only in the frayed threads of memory.
I now have the splendid opportunity to do some writing for The Cleveland Cinematheque and AkronFilm+Pixel. This means, primarily, program notes. And I want to log them here as they’re written. I hope you’ll enjoy them and find them informative.
His aim is to simultaneously stir cinephiles while sparking the interest of the uninitiated. His writing is always aware of its crucial role as teaching, while being in possession of a style that is personal and elegant. And all of his program notes radiate an erudite, cinephilic excitement that is intensely appealing.
